Israeli air force planes fly over St. Peter’s Church in the coastal city of Jaffa as the country marks its 65th Independence Day. In 1945, Jaffa had a population of 101,580, of whom 53,930 were Muslims, 30,820 were Jews and 16,800 were Christians. When Jewish forces occupied the city on 14 May, 1948, only 4,000 of the city’s Muslim and Christian Palestinian residents remained.
Israel banished Palestinian residents from Haifa’s Wadi Salib neighborhood in 1948 and evicted its later North African Jewish residents after the 1959 riots. Today, most of its historic structures have been destroyed or are sealed and slated for demolition. In foreground, an old children’s magazine called ‘Our Land.’ Tour organized by Zochrot.
